I hope you are not doing night shifts, because night-shifters do have insomnia.
For Insomnia, there are many medicines. But try to avoid the medicines and go for natural remedies initially. Some natural tips
Keep your sleep time the same daily.
Avoid tea & coffee (both contain caffeine), cigarette & tobacco (contain nicotine) and other stimulants six hours before your normal sleep time.
Take a glass of warm milk before going to bed.
If nothing works out you may take some pills later on.

I am 35 and never had any major medical concerns until January. I was a smoker for 20 years and stopped in November and got off the nicotine lozenges in january.used I started feeling lightheaded(airhead feeling) constantly from sun up to sun down. I didn t feel like it when I was laying down. Most the time I am confused also and can t react as quick when speaking to someone. I have always been a talker and confident at that. This was everyday for at least 1 month. After 2 weeks I was thinking I was dying because I feared a brain tumor. I went to a doctor and he diagnosed me hypothyroid and told me I need to get my blood cholesterol and blood sugar down by changing my diet. I went from eating a Burger King sausage biscuit and sweet tea every morning to eating oatmeal or Kashi with Soy Milk. I went from eating a bologna, cheese, and mayonnaise sandwich on white bread for lunch to a turkey and mustard on wheat with baked chips. I went from eating a burger and fried chicken sandwich from bugerking for supper to a health choice meal. I would always drink 2 monster energy drinks everyday to just water during the day. I started eating fiber bars for snacks and fruit. I went from having over 40 grams of saturated fat to about 14 grams a day. I was still feeling lightheaded even on the generic thyroid medicine. So by this time I am a mess everyday worrying sick about my health. Doctor granted me an MRI even though he thought nothing was wrong and it came back no abnormalities and they said they couldn t see my sinuses because of the braces on my teeth. I started having a day where I didn t feel confused but 2 days later it was back and would stay for the next 5 days. Went to a endocrinologist and he got me up to 75mg of brand name synthroid and now tells me I am normal. I know my original tsh was 9. He said my testosterone is low and recommended androgel so I started using that 4 days ago. My muscles in my back started hurting me 3 weeks ago. It is not severe everyday. It might be in the lower or mid or upper. My neck has hurt some too while I am looking down for a brief period. 3 weeks was when I switched from the generic thyroid to synthroid. My stomach has been making some crazy sounds and have felt some pains. Notice green stools a couple of days and a black spot in the brown dookie today. I break out and cry because I feel like I m falling apart and that I m going die. The endo said he checked my b12, prostate, red blood, white blood, prolactin, ammoray, sedway. I lost 10 pounds over a 7 week period by changing my diet and worrying myself. My wife said that is normal but I didn t know. I was 200 5 foot 8 and now weigh 190. I am eating a lot but hardly no saturated fat. I have had a problem with my hands falling asleep a lot also.
Yes - I typed in my symptoms. I m allergic to dust and take Claritin D 12 hour tabs (1 per day). I very often feel like my heart is pounding. Average pulse 72 and blood pressure 135/85. I use dip (nicotine) every day. At night when going to bed, often feel heart pounding, and it usually takes me a while to fall asleep. Have my own business. We are VERY busy - stressful. 6 3 200#
right before surgery my nicotine urine test came back positive and I do not smoke nor does anyone I hang out with . I hate smoking! How is this possible? BTW, nurse gave me one on the spot and it came out negative. I think it was one to test for cotinine. Thank you.
I am a 6 foot, 165 pound, 26 year old male. I have been a smoker for 8 years. 8 days ago I started using the nicotine patch and since then I have had trouble sustaining an erection. I stopped using the nicotine patch yesterday and decided to quit cold turkey but I am still having trouble sustaining a erection during sex. I never had trouble with this when I was a smoker.
